Compuserve

Looks like Herbie is the proto-geek. However, I barely knew there were computers in 1983 and certainly no one I knew had one for home use. I was using a lot of quarters playing Space Invaders though...
 From Wikipedia; In 1981, The Times explained CompuServe's technology in one sentence: Compuserve is offering a video-text-like service permitting personal computer users to retrieve software from the mainframe computer over telephone lines.
